The draft eco-design regulation on fans has an impact on a wide range of fan applications – not only on building ventilation but also on various industrial processes requiring e.g. dust conveying fans or high pressure/low volume (HPLV) fans. The discussions during the latest stakeholder meeting showed that those industrial aspects haven’t been considered to a sufficient scale in the review study. The proposed efficiency requirements 2020 to be applied to HPLV fans can’t be met. This document describes the problem and contains a proposition to solve it.
